WaPo sez: "Don’t gloat about the Ashley Madison leak. It’s about way more than infidelity."

Here's what WaPo is really worried about -- that they themselves or their "social justice" heroes might be outed to the discredit of their "cause."
But the Internet soon turned its ire on other suspected Ashley Madison members, such as university professors and other “SJWs,” a derogatory acronym for “social justice warriors,” or people who speak out publicly against discrimination.
LATER: YUP, NOW WE KNOW WHY -- "15,000 government emails revealed in Ashley Madison leak."

Humans are worst than most all animals, yet have the ability an will to destroy everything they come in contact with for 10 seconds, of joy or money! End times are upon us, me think.

“Here were tens of millions of people expecting the highest level of privacy that the commercial web could offer as they conducted business they likely wanted to keep between two people. This hack could be ruinous — personally, professionally, financially — for them and their families. But for everyone else, it could haunt every email, private message, text and transaction across an internet where privacy has been taken for granted.”

Does anyone actually think this is a bad thing somehow?

Yes, much information posted on the internet is there because people think it is somehow "private" or anonymous. In fact it is not, and for their own protection people should always consider the consequences of that information being compromised. But almost all of the social pathologies which the internet displays also arise from the expectation of privacy, so it is not just for their own good but for the good of everyone else that people should act as if they will eventually be held personally accountable for every shameful deed in the darkness.

If awareness of the dangers of 'private' information being revealed leads to more people using actual encryption technology, then that is a good thing for them. If it also leads to fewer people acting like irresponsible idiots in the public sphere, then that is good for all of us.

Of course, the most important thing is to get out information on what those who arrogate to administrate and regulate our government are doing. Because that's where the lack of proper digital security on the one hand and a sense of accountability on the other are hurting us all worst.
